        The Shadow of the Wind +++ exclusive leather-bound (!), hand-illustrated limited edition +++

      Burton, Subterranean Press and Antiquariat Buecherwelten, 2008.. 8°, Ledereinband. Only five copies of the already beautiful edition by Subterranean Press were bound in sumptuous burgundy-red goat leather by Antiquariat Buecherwelten, title, top edge and decors in gilt, raised bands on spine. Carlos Ruiz Zafon was so kind to add a doodle of a dragon to signature-page. The illustrator Vincent Chong added a full page hand-drawn, multi-coloured remarque of the front cover motif to one of the title pages. Signed by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Vincent Chong. Please don't hesitate to ask for more details and photos. Extraordinary collectible indeed! "The Shadow of the Wind" is one of four novels that could be interconnected, that could share some characters, some plot-lines, some elements, but that could be read in any order. My ideas was to create some kind of labyrinth of stories into which you could enter through any door. Depending what door you enter, you could read one or two of these stories or all of them in a new order. "The Shadow of the Wind" was in some ways the first act of the whole story, although it is not a sequential story." (Carlos Ruiz Zafon) All our books are shipped bubble-wrapped in sturdy card-box.

        De prospectiva pingendi

      Aboca Edizioni, Sansepolcro 2008 - [Facsimile da Collezione]Nel trattato, composto verosimilmente tra il 1472 e il 1475, è proposta una serie di problemi di riduzione prospettica, dai più semplici ai più complessi, studiati inmodo da introdurre gradatamente alla nuova tecnica con dimostrazioni pratiche. L'Artista pone una serie di quesiti e risponde con la costruzione della prospettiva tramite disegni geometrici e illustrazioni.Il pregiato facsimile realizzato da Aboca Museum Edizioni, ripropone il trattato conservato nella Biblioteca Panizzi di Reggio Emilia (Ms. Regg. A 41/2, XV secolo), con tutta la maestosità della nobile legatura e dei cento disegni autografi di Piero, elementi che costituiscono un valore aggiunto per quest'opera di notevole importanza storica, artistica e scientifica. Aboca Museum conferma, con questa pubblicazione artistica la volontà di valorizzare la cultura storica del proprio territorio, la Valtiberina Toscana, affiancando l'interesse classico per le piante medicinali. IL COFANETTO Il prezioso cofanetto contiene, insieme al facsimile, il relativo commentario, che spiega l'opera nei dettagli rendendola facilmente comprensibile. Rivestito in tela "imitlin" nera, il cofanetto è rifinito con decori in oro a caldo. Ogni esemplare del facsimile è numerato ed è accompagnato da un certificato di garanzia. IL COMMENTARIO Il commento critico presenta le innovative "lezioni di prospettiva" di Piero della Francesca. L'approfondita analisi scientifica, resa semplice e comprensibile dalla perizia degli autori, è illustrata da una serie di immagini suggestive ed eloquenti. Massimo Mussini, storico dell'arte, profondo conoscitore delle problematiche della pittura, nel suo contributo Piero della Francesca, la Pittura e la Prospettiva, mette in evidenza l'applicazione pratica delle regole prospettiche nei dipinti dell'Artista. Luigi Grasselli, matematico, esperto di topologia algebrica e geometrica, analizza e commenta i disegni autografi di Piero con un contributo intitolato La geometria del De prospectiva pingendi.

Begun in 1975 & continuing, the Plays now number ninety-three. My intention has always been to make one hundred. Landscape is the vocabulary of the Plays, as landscape can be a living source of power. Text accompanies the images to enhance, contrast, & explicate the goals of the series: reminiscence, inquiry, reconciliation. The format is unchanging, each little square within the whole serves as a discovery of sensibilities near, far, old, new.The Plays were stimulated by Ezra Pounds Cantos, spirit plays of Japans Noh theatre & W. B. Yeats, music. Their character derives from sojourns in the Midwest, West, & Japan, & journeys between. Love, longing, mysteries predominate the many themes contained with nature in the series. Even after thirty-three years they reveal new paths. Image or additional images available upon request

        The History of Plural Marriage among the Mormon People

      Genola, UT: Pioneer Publishing, 2008. First editions. Seven volume set. 419, 517, 454, 429, 441, 464, 430 pp. Octavo [21.5 cm]; black cloth with gilt titles and borders on front boards and backstrips. All volumes fine. & Comprehensive work on Mormon polygamy by fundamentalist Arnold Boss (1894-1969). Boss began working on this history in the late 1920s or early 1930s and continued to research and work on it for the following two decades. Boss wrote to the Huntington library in 1953 that he was "far from being through." These works cover a century of Mormon polygamy, from Joseph Smith's revelation in 1831 to Heber J. Grant's tenure as LDS President. Arnold Boss was one of fifteen men incarcerated in the Utah State penitentiary in 1945 for practicing polygamy. These fifteen men were asked to sign an affidavit stating that they would no longer practice or promote plural marriage, the majority of the men signed. Boss stated before the board of pardons a year later "No, rather than sign that [paper] and give up my wives I would prefer to be taken out and shot." Boss (as well as Louis Kelsch and Charles Zitting) stayed in jail for another year because of his defiance.

And he knows perfectly well that when, on the last pages of his novel, he writes about a memory of Manhattan's skyline and the 'extraordinary promise in what we saw', he is hovering, like some novelistic Google Earther, over the sentence grids and prose plateaus of the last page of 'The Great Gatsby'

Unread condition.Book 1 of the IBIS trilogy, shortlisted for the Booker prize 2008. We also have available Signed and dated UK Firsts of Book 2 of this trilogy, "River of Smoke" - see out listings. Synopsis: At the heart of this epic saga, set just before the Opium Wars, is an old slaving-ship, The Ibis. Its destiny is a tumultuous voyage across the Indian Ocean, its crew a motley array of sailors and stowaways, coolies and convicts. In a time of colonial upheaval, fate has thrown together a truly diverse cast of Indians and Westerners, from a bankrupt Raja to a widowed villager, from an evangelical English opium trader to a mulatto American freedman. As their old family ties are washed away they, like their historical counterparts, come to view themselves as jahaj-bhais or ship-brothers. An unlikely dynasty is born, which will span continents, races and generations. The vast sweep of this historical adventure spans the lush poppy fields of the Ganges, the rolling high seas, and the exotic backstreets of China. But it is the panorama of characters, whose diaspora encapsulates the vexed colonial history of the East itself, which makes Sea of Poppies so breathtakingly alive - a masterpiece from one of the world's finest novelists.

        STEINE". Eine Sammlung von 20 Original- Graphit Zeichnungen.

      2008 - 2008. je 21 x 29,7 cm, Auf Zeichenpapier. Ungerahmt. ".Diese Steine werden, noch am Strand (von Rügen), direkt aufs Papier gelegt und ihre Gestalt mit dem Graphitstift umrissen - ein Vorgang, mit dem abstrahiert wird. Die Dreidimensionalität des Objekts verwandelt sich in Zweidimensionalität, Masse wird auf ihre Kontur reduziert, Schweres ganz leicht. Die durch den Stein bedingte, fest vorgegebene Linie bedeutet Material, das in einem zweiten Schritt frei gehandhabt werden kann. Der Stein - für eine Zeichnung wird immer derselbe verwendet - wird mehrfach umrissen, dabei gedreht und gewendet oder aber in einer Position belassen. So entstehen Liniengefüge unterschiedlicher Dichte, die sich wiederum zu neuen Gebilden formieren und die ursprüngliche Kontur mal mehr, mal weniger deutlich hervortreten lassen. Dr. Agnes Matthias, Leiterin der Grafischen Sammlung am Kunstforum Ostdeutsche Galerie Regensburg. Sechs einzelne Motive sind auf Anfrage lieferbar, für je EUR 380,- Sprache: Deutsch

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his wife

      New York, March 1908. Letter. Folds from mailing, still about Fine, with envelope. A three-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED as "Pearl" (Grey was born Pearl Zane Gray) to his wife "Dolly" on three sheets of illustrated New Grand Hotel stationery with envelope postmarked March 1908. Grey discusses his rotten position: "I'm afraid I can't have Outing publish my book until everybody's got good and ready to let me.... And I, like an idiot signed that paper, which legally gives them the right to my photographs. Why didn't you or Murphy see that? If they don't choose to use the story & pictures I can't get the book published at all. It's most damnably sickening. I don't know what to do.... For a measly little hundred dollars I have about queered my chances.... Murphy says it will work out allright [sic]. I hope so, but tonight I can't see anything but black. Will be on the mountain tomorrow." Zane Grey decided to become a writer just five years before this letter when he wrote a fishing story that appeared in RECREATION MAGAZINE. Outing published Grey's third book, THE LAST OF THE PLAINSMEN, in 1908 complete with Grey's photographs. It was based on a trip Grey made out West with Col. "Buffalo" Jones in 1907. This trip was the turning point in Grey's life, but his book about Jones and his experiences in the Grand Canyon was not successful. It would be a few more years before Grey became a success with RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE. An outstanding early letter revealing the torment of a struggling writer.

        Gone Away World

      Heinemann, 2008. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. SIGNED and lined by the author on title page. Fine copy in Mint unread condition. Synopsis: The Jorgmund Pipe is the backbone of the world, and it's on fire. Gonzo Lubitsch, professional hero and troubleshooter, is hired to put it out - but there's more to the fire, and the Pipe itself, than meets the eye. The job will take Gonzo and his best friend, our narrator, back to their own beginnings and into the dark heart of the Jorgmund Company itself. From rural childhood in Cricklewood Cove to military service in a bewildering foreign war; from Jarndice University to the sawdust of the Nameless Bar; their story is the story of the Gone-Away World. It is the history of a friendship stretched beyond its limits; a tale of love and loss; of ninjas, pirates, politics and strange places. Equal parts raucous adventure, comic odyssey, geek nirvana, and cool epic, this is The Gone-Away World.
